Will A Stairlift Fit?

Stair Lifts Fit Most Staircases

  • A staircase needs to be a minimum of 32″ wide to fit a stairlift. The track is mounted on the stair treads and will extend out from the wall between 6 to 9 inches.

  • The chairlift’s seat, arms, and footrest will fold up when the lift is not in use. Folded up, stairlifts will extend from 11 to 16 inches from the wall.

  • Stairlift track does extend beyond the bottom of the staircase which, in some cases, can be a problem. A manual or electric folding rail will allow the track to fold up and out fo the way when the stairlift is not in use.

What Do Stair Lifts Include?

Stairlifts are very easy to understand and operate. While there are some difference between makes and models, all of our lifts have simple controls and robust safety features. All stairlifts have a simple switch that controls their movement. The lift travles up or down the stairway when the rider pushes and holds the switch. The chair stops automatically when the stairlift reaches the end of the track. If you release the switch at any point along the way the lift will stop immediately and all lifts are supplied with seatbelts.

  • Remote Controls: All stairlifts installed by EHLS come with a pair of remote controls that allow a user to call or send the chair from the top or bottom of the stairs. The controls are a convenient way for a caregiver to control the seat’s motion if the rider needs assistance. The remote control also allows users to use the lift as a dumbwaiter by placing packages or a clostes basket on the seat and using the remote to send them up or down.

  • Seat Controls: The pictures above feature the very popular Bruno Elite stairlift – both curved and straight models. The black switch at the end of the right armrest controls the lift. Rock the switch one way and the seat will travel up the stairs. Rock it the opposite way and the chair will head for the lower landing.

  • Swivel Away from the Top of the Stairs: The rider in this picture is demonstrating how a stairlift seat swivels at the top. As the pictures shows, the seat swivels away from the stairs while the footrest remains in place. The swiveling action places the rider’s feet safely on the top landing allowing the rider to stand safely.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your terrific staff for maintaining the chair lifts at my father’s house – Al S. in Glenview.

Curved Stairlift vs 2 Straights?

We often come across customers who are considering installing two straights for a staircase with a 90 degree turn at a landing. While the two straights are less expensive, the landing must be large enough to accommodate the rider and caregiver, if needed. One of our excellent and friendly sales professionals will take measurements and recommend the right solution for you!
